I am constantly astonished and entranced by the myriad forms of life on this planet. To quote one of my very favorite authors, Annie Dillard, in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, "the creator has pizzazz".
I hope to display a variety of animal images on this blog to delight us all. I have created many products featuring wildlife and pets for my Zazzle stores, Bebop's Place and Bebop's Weddings, using my original photographs and designs. I am also constantly amazed at the gorgeous animal products available from the rest of the Zazzle community. I am hoping others will enjoy this blog and even be moved to purchase some of these lovely items for gifts or just for the pleasure of having such beauty around.
This stunning fine art soap dispenser and toothbrush holder bathroom set features a female Red Tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis). One of the most widespread and commonly observed birds of prey in North America, this fierce hunter is perched on a branch high up in some evergreen spruce trees, patiently waiting for a meal to appear. Her head is brown and the creamy white breast has brown spots.
The image on this poster if from an original oil painting by award winning Colorado artist Debra Mickelson, and shows a majestic mule deer buck in early winter. The deer is standing on a rock ridge with a bright blue sky and a green pine tree behind it. The foreground shows snow covered rocks in shadow and sunlight.
